Yellow Pages recycling plan
A pilot scheme for recycling old Yellow Pages books is to run throughout April, but the only public collection points will be in Welwyn and Hatfield.
Brookmans Park residents wanting to take advantage of the scheme to dispose of the 1,220 page books will have to travel to the nearest public drop off point in Hatfield to do so.
All the books that are collected will be shredded to provide animal bedding. The nearest drop off point to Brookmans Park is the Hatfield Leisure Centre on Travellers Lane.
According to Welwyn Hatfield District Council, Yellow Pages canít be recycled with normal paper recycling because of the strong colours so they have to be collected separately.
Recycling bins marked "Yellow Pages only" can be found at the following locations:
This feature was added following a suggestion from a member of the Brookmans Park Newsletter Forum. You can discuss this issue in the forum.
